    Default Waxing a black car

    I need help..I decided to clean the missus black corsa tonight, first I washed it, then clayed it, then ag super resin polish, I then decided to give it a coat of wax, had no probs waxing my vectra, silver lightning, but when I go to buff the wax off the corsa it seems to leave dark patches that only seem to go away if I rub real hard! Am I putting too much wax on? Not enough? Putting it on with a microfibre is this ok or should I be using a proper applicator? it as if it's discolouring the paintwork slightly unless I put a lot of pressure on when buffing it off(by hand)..any help would be appreciated..sorry no pics because it doesn't show up on a picture..

    Sounds like too much is being applied with the microfibre. I would use a proper applicator

    cheers for the replies, i dont think its the ag resin polish because that seems ok on the car and brings it up a treat, its just the wax i have a problem with, i'll have to try it with a proper applicator and see what difference that makes..

    Yep use a foam applicator the microfibre is probably applying too thick a layer, you shouldn't be able to really see the wax on the surface very much. As a result of you getting it on too thick in the areas you got the problems the wax hasn't cured fully so you were trying to buff uncured wax which isnt easy, you could have left those areas to cure further and then buffed again or used a quick detailer which will help remove the excess wax then buff it up again.
